Just when things are blurry, unfocused and (to put it bluntly)..unstable....GOD carries me right over the mud puddles and then sets me down to continue on my creative journey.
There have been some changes in my direction the past month or so, some you will notice and some you will not, and regardless of anything that happens...I remain grateful that I am a blessed girl to do what I love for a living and to be able to remind and share with you without hesitation.
I have realized that even though sometimes, or maybe more than just sometimes, I do a little bit too much....I remain "semi"balanced because of my "center" (note: the cross around my neck, duh!) see self-portrait below.
I am so grateful for a GOD that knows me, a family that loves me and and amazing friends that surround me..even when they bring me flowers for something that they thought I was doing for them when actually, the flowers were just what I needed at that exact moment....though I am simply complicated, can NEVER pick where to go to lunch on Wednesdays, giggle during out loud prayers, "disappear" to go to bed during later night gatherings (like at 9pm!) and am often napping on the "house of couch" when they come into the gara-mah-hall..or...folding laundry....
or they always push, I mean, remind me...that my skills lie in doodling....thanks, D!
which brings me to the first "something new".
I have developed wonderful friends through this blog. Last week, during a jet-lagged, Nyquil induced coma...I was invited by my friend Lori to be part of a WONDERFUL site and I invite you to go over and take some time to enjoy..there is a little something doodlicious for you (I think I just invented a new word...)
GOD is good...just sayin.
THIS JUST IN....from a FB friend:
A quote from First for Women magazine."According to British researchers, doodling and coloring instantly revs mental energy, concentration and focus by 29 percent. And all the study subjects did to get that brain boost was shade in shapes for 2 1/2 minutes. The repetitive precise motion stimulates the brain's alertness center."
